Ermira "Mira" Murati (born 16 December 1988) is an Albanian engineer, researcher, and tech executive, who has been the Chief Technology Officer of OpenAI since 2018.[1][2][3][4][5]

Early life and education

Murati was born on 16 December 1988[6] in Vlorë, Albania.[7] Throughout her school years, she participated in many Olympiads and math competitions.[8]

At age 16, she won a scholarship and attended the Pearson United World College of the Pacific in Canada, from which she graduated in 2005.[9][10] Murati then pursued a dual-degree program in the United States, earning a Bachelor of Arts (AB) in Mathematics from Colby College in 2011,[11][12] followed in 2012 by a Bachelor of Engineering from the Thayer School of Engineering (where she studied Mechanical Engineering).[13][14][15][16][17]

In 2024, Dartmouth College awarded Murati an honorary Doctor of Science for her work in artificial intelligence, technology, and engineering.[18][19]

Career

Early career

Murati briefly worked for Zodiac Aerospace before joining electric car company Tesla in 2013, where she was a Product Manager on the Model X. From 2016 until joining OpenAI in 2018, she worked for augmented reality start-up Leap Motion (now Ultraleap).[20][21][22][23]

OpenAI

Murati joined OpenAI in 2018 as a researcher, and became its chief technology officer, leading its work on ChatGPT, Dall-E, Codex and Sora,[20][24][25] while overseeing its research, product and safety teams.[26] She oversees the technical advancements and direction of OpenAI's various projects, including the development of advanced AI models and tools[citation needed]. Her work has been instrumental [citation needed] in the development and deployment [citation needed] of some of OpenAI's most notable products, such as the Generative Pretrained Transformer (GPT) series of language models[citation needed]. Her work includes pushing the boundaries of machine learning while advocating for the responsible and ethical use of AI technologies.[27]

On 17 November 2023, Murati briefly took over as interim chief executive officer of OpenAI following the abrupt removal of Sam Altman.[28][29][16][30] She was replaced by Emmett Shear three days later, who was in turn replaced when Altman was reinstated five days after being ousted (after which Murati returned to her role as CTO).[31][32][33]

Writing about Murati for Time's 2023 100 Next list of rising leaders across industries, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said, "She has a demonstrated ability to assemble teams with technical expertise, commercial acumen, and a deep appreciation for the importance of mission ... Mira has helped build some of the most exciting AI technologies we’ve ever seen, including ChatGPT, DALL-E, and GPT-4."[34]
